to jerusalem to help secure a truce before israel launches a ground invasion. u.n. secretary-general ban ki moon is also there and nine arab leaders are showing solidarity with the palestinians. a big change since the last serious fighting four years ago. earlier today at the u.n., the united states blocked a joint statement condemning the conflict because it didn't mention the root cause which the u.s. says is hamas missile attacks. nbc's martin fletcher is in tel aviv and martin, if there's a talk of cease-fire, what is israel doing dropping leaflets? >> reporter: that's a good question. israel actually -- it has not said that the cease-fire is as far advanced as the arabs have. israel is insisting on a long-term solution and they haven't got that yet. so what they're doing is still preparing their way for a possible ground invasion if these talks of a truce fall through. so israel's army is still poised to invade and they have dropped leaflets in certain areas of gaza, eltelling people to stay away from certain roads, particularly in the north, where the israeli army has gone in first wh

committee. congressman, good morning. >> good morning, chris. >> u.n. representative cole sent a letter to president morsi asking him to refrain from giving hamas cover to intensify its attacks by allowing egyptian delegations to visit gaza. of course, morsi has been a major player in these truce negotiations. do you think he's sending a mixed message? >> well, he is sending a mixed message. you know, i hope that president morsi is able to play a constructive role. but when high-level delegations of egyptians go into gaza under the pretense of a cease-fire and then terrorist groups violate that cease fire, if israel were to defend itself and members of the delegation was tragically hurt in that attack, we do not want that to be used as a pretense to violate the egyptian/israeli peace treaty. one other thing on this, chris. look, there's a fundamental truth here. i was on the border of gaza and israel in august of 2005 when israel unilaterally and without any preconditions left gaza. actually went in and asked jews this in there to leave. they said here is the land, build something with
at the u.n. and had this graphic illustration of the problem, he created what was a new threshold for them. and the threshold. from the previous to my don't know, 6-12 months the israelis have been focusing on primarily because of the defense minister, what he called the son of immunity. what he meant was, iran was going to of, with the character of the sip their program, the theft of the redundancy, the hardening of the nuclear program would reach a point where the israelis would actually lose their military options. and not just this one, easily accept a situation where they face a threat but no longer have the military option to deal with it. and so what he was trying to say come identify the point at which the zone of immunity, he was saying it would be the end of 2012. he has changed that and said it has been pushed back. when the prime minister was in new york he focused on the point at which the iranians would cross a threshold where there would have the ability to grow the nuclear weapon and you would not be allowed to do anything about it. he was suggesting that would be when they

it right now, steve. that's for sure. ambassador john bolton is here, the former ambassador to the u.n., quite a roundup that steve provided for us. how do we get answers here? >> we won't get them from the administration. you saw from those political operatives that they have talking about this that their response to criticism is ad hominem arguments. they are not capable of responding. the tragedy on september 11 was a reflection of a failed obama administration world view, a view that the arab spring had brought democrat to libya in the middle-east, generally, that al qaeda is defeated and the war on terrorism is over. that's what led to the decisions well before the attack in benghazi. not to give enhanced security despite repeated requests from the people on the ground. that's why that cable that fox news came up with that katherine has reported, should have been a fire bell in the night at the state department when it came back to washington, almost four weeks before the attack. >> i have relied on the great reporting by katherine herig and jennifer grif and i know fox news in ge

a blast? it feels un-american. thou shalt shop today. let's check in on how the shoppingthey're shopping in shifts. now we have the daytime shift start, and the numbers seem to keep growing. already the stores in this mall were up 6% at the end of october, so they believe that will only increase here. people are actually filling bags, they say they're finding bargains, so obviously that's great news, not only for them, about you for the retailers who counseled on this day so much. more than -- more than 50020 shops, so the selection here, if you can't find it here, you probably don't need it or won't be able to find it. so far things have been going well. the other good news is it seems across the nation that this black friday has started without any incident, any real injury. of course there's countless cases of shop are fatigue going on. >> mall of america on black friday, that is the thick of it right there. >>> with the economy so uncertain because of the fiscal cliff will it be the discounter or the luxury retailer? >> that is the question we are asking our two guests. eddie roomer
when he gave his speech at the u.n. and he had this graphic illustration of the problem, he created what was a new threshold for them. for the previous, i don't know, six to 12 months, israelis have been focusing on what they called immunity. the result of immunity. what you mean by that was the death and the breath and the hardening of the nuclear program they face an existential threat and have the military option to deal with it. so they are saying under a point at which they own immunity is going to kick in, he was saying this is going to be the end of 2012. he has changed that and has said it has been pushed back eight to 10 months. when the prime minister was in new york, he focused not only on his own immunity, but the point at which iranians would cross the threshold where they would have the ability to build a nuclear weapon and you wouldn't be able to do anything about it. and he was suggesting that that would be when they had one at 20%. that is a limited definition. the issue for him was to define in a way, it also pushed off into the middle of 2013. they came up with di
was removed from u.n. ambassador susan rice's talking points. in the days following the deadly assault, rice said administration believed the attack was a reaction to an anti-islamic video. but, an associated press report says former cia director david petraeus testified on friday that he believed all along that the attack on the consulate was a terrorist strike. >> so let's -- before we set up these clips, let's make sure we set this up right. so we've been hearing, mark halperin, that susan rice said what she said because she was reading straight intel from the cia. we find out from david tet pet trace, this isn't true. that immediately david petraeus and intel officials knew this was an al qaeda attack. right? >> it's still kind of confusing. >> i'm basing that on "the new york times" reports and everything that i read through the weekend. >> totality of the reporting is there was another line coming out of the closed hearing was that they didn't want to say everything they knew in public because they didn't want the terrorists to know that tus government was on to them. >> i heard that.
. thousands of people celebrating in the west bank. they changed the status from un observer. this is what they will be called nonmember observer state. they are voting against the move. and it shows a real lack of commitment to stop it from happening. benjamin netanyahu said the vote violates the path agreement. brian. >> brian: we have a one state solution. if you take the cholesteral lowering pill lipitor listen up. it ran back. and i knew that. ran baxy has stopped the production of the depeneric version of the pill until it determines how glass ended up in the bottle. no word on injuries. this is the first time it has been in trouble and operating under court watch after manufacturing problems were found in the u.s. india plants. >> steve: remember this yesterday. zebra and a pony friend busting out of a petting island zoo. the circus is over. the animal's owner has been fined with a violation. a whole slew of animals including roosters and peacocks. the owner was cleaning the stalls. he claims they are part of a petting zoo he had a permit for. the health department has no record of
at the u.n. and e had this graphic -- he had this graphic illustration of the problem, he was, he created what was a new threshold for them. he called it a red line, but a new threshold. they had -- for the previous, i don't know, 6-12 months the israelis had been focusing on, primarily because of the defense minister, ehud barak, the zone of immunity. and what he meant was iran was going to with the character of its nuclear program, the depth, the breadth, the redundancy, the hardening of the nuclear program was going to reach a point where the israelis would actually lose their military option. and no israeli prime minister is going to accept a situation where they face an existential threat, but they no longer have a military option to deal with it. so ehud barak was trying to identify the point at which the zone of immunity was going to kick in. now, he was saying it was going to be the end of 2012. now, he's changed that and said it's been pushed back 8-12 -- 8-10 months. when the prime minister was in new york he focused not on the zone of immunity, he focused on what's the point in
of mass destruction. and the moon landing was real. and fema is not building concentration camps. and un election observers are not taking over texas. and moderate reforms of the regulations on the insurance industry and the financial services industry in this country are not the same thing as communism. listen, last night was a good night for liberals and for democrats for very obvious reasons, but it was also, possibly, a good night for this country as a whole. because in this country, we have a two-party system in government. and the idea is supposed to be that the two sides, both come up with ways to confront and fix the real problems facing our country. they both propose possible solutions to our real problems. and we debate between those possible solutions. and by the process of debate, we pick the best idea. that competition between good ideas from both sides about real problems in the real country should result in our country having better choices, better options, than if only one side is really working on the hard stuff. and the if the republican party and the conservative movem
for the debate. susan rice the u.n. ambassador has also been talked about leading contender. she got caught up in the whole benghazi situation. the famous now infamous sunday morning talk show interviews that were confusing. that may hurt her chances. we will see. the other big name out there is eric holder, the attorney general, whether or not he will stay or go. today he addressed that take a listen. that's something i'm in the process of trying to determine. the first step has already occurred the president has been reelected and i will have to think about can i contribute in a second term. sit down and talk with him. >> he has obviously been through a lot of controversy. the fact that he is even considering the possibility is obviously getting people to think that he is one person who might leave some time in the near future. the other person to watch would be tim geithner the treasury secretary. jack lu the white house staff is one of the leading contender ifs geithner does go. he has said for more than a year now he wants to leave. it's been a grind for him dealing with the financial cri
this is a strike protected under unfair labor practices. >> that's not just bad advice, that's un-american. americans have the right to strike for certain purposes without being fired. that is something we all ought to worry about. more importantly, these are folks who work full-time and make about $15,500. what is good for walmart, what is good for the economy, what's good for job creation is having people paid enough to buy the products that they sell. henry ford, that great socialist, understood that if you underpaid retail workers, auto workers, people like that, the economy would collapse. what these workers are saying is that walmart is mistreating them. they have a right to say it. it frankly would be better for everybody if they get to paid a little bit more. >> but -- >> no one is forcing these employees to work at walmart. if they could get paid more elsewhere, they would leave and get paid more in other jobs. besides, with an unemployment rate near 8%, there are plenty of other people who want those jobs at walmart. also, everyone thinks that they're underpaid. you prob

a little better. consumer sentiment has rizzs un. consumer spending has been a bit stronger, but businesses, probably in part because they are more exposed to the global economy and in part, because they may be more aware of these fiscal issues, more directly connected to these fiscal issues, business confidence has been pretty low and investment has responded to that been quite weak. so i think uncertainty has been an important factor. i'm sure it is restraining, particularly longer term investments it is leading businesses to wait for resolution of uncertainty before they make commitments to new hiring and new projects, new markets. and is in that respect, it is clearly a negative. you asked for how much. you know, i think it's probably significant, but it's very, very hard to assess any kind of rigorous way exactly how big the affects r but again, i think they are meaningful, because we see, businesses have been quite cautious and conservative, particularly lately. either the question i think though that's very important is uncertainty about what? there's a lot of uncertainty his the wor

. when i look at what's going on this area, to u.n. security council is dysfunctional, not working, not capable of coming to a conclusion. the g20 has not fulfilled, at least not according to me, the expectations we had when this larger body was created. in other words, from a european point of view, you need to worry about the fact that europe will have obviously a smaller portion of the cake in the future. germany is going to a 1% of the worlds population. the e.u. altogether 5%, 40 or so. in other words, what probably needs minority protection. we have a ton about that much. that's a specific problem for europeans, not so much for americans. if that is correct analysis, did we need to worry about global governance. we are capable as long as we are in charge and as long as we still represent to some degree the majority and as long as are capable for helping to shape the international system. we are capable of shaping an international system, which will be sustained even when we are only a minority. in other words, we called the shot. can we reform the u.n., the g20 system and oth
there by u.n. secretary general for what will be a complex bit of diplomacy. the president's aide said mrs. clinton will not be going into gaza and not talking with hamas. >> can assure you she'll be meeting with the palestinian authority. the united states does not engage directly with hamas. hamas has not met the conditions we set. >> president obama voiced his support for israel's right to defend itself at a news conference on this trip. but in his private diplomacy, he has been urging israel to hold off sending troops into gaza and hopes the rocket attacks can be stopped without an escalation of the battle and the much greater casualties that would bring. this is the first international test of egypt's new muslim brotherhood government and while u.s. officials will not compare it with egypt's former president, hosni mubarak, they do say that they are encouraged by the consultation and cooperation they've had from egypt's new leadership. guys, back to you. >> steve: wendell goler in cambodia. >> brian: i don't know what time it is with laura ingraham. >> steve: she's in our time zone. >
-integrating everything. for the first 75 years, we have never received the people's republic of china and the u.n. report -- they changed this position on the island. and to me, i don't want to get into that too many details. frankly, this is not the heart of the issue. china is trying to advance. there is an issue with japan. from japan to taiwan, the philippines, this is from the viewpoint of china. china has openly expressed their views on this in maritime security. and those are part of the reality. so this is a kind of comprehensive strategy to advance. >> that is an important point. what you're basically saying is that this is about power and the power -- china is clearly becoming more powerful. you are seeing lines being challenged. i remember talking to george soros once after he broke the back of england -- i'm sorry, broke the bank of england. what he saw as a hedge fund manager basically drove so hard against the wind that fundamentally the institutional power on the bank of england site had to collapse. and i have looked at asia and the test of power in the region, whether it was the vp incid

that in the '90s, we had several examples of massive united nations led interventions where the u.n. move in and establish a presence at a governance in iraq and afghanistan, it was u.s. and nato-led. but in the middle east and north africa particularly in these three countries we were discussing, something new is happening. this is the international community learning how to do things different. we are not going back to what we've done in the last 20 years. we're going to do this in a different way. and i think as an international community where learning what that processes. if you on the ground you can see. there's a lot of things going on, a lot of people there but there's a hesitancy about this intervention. and this involvement. that is quite telling. it wasn't there, you know, in the past. >> thank you. >> yes, i'd like to know how -- i'm abigail woodward and the like to know how women's rights are being protected and advanced. and i like to know if the muslim brotherhood is seen as the main impediment to that, and other constitutions are including them? >> let's start perhaps with
i think question that needs to be answered is why then would the ambassador to the u.n. on behalf of the white house five days after the attacks even though this email went to the white house within hours, that a terrorist group is taking responsibility, go on every major news station and say that this was a spontaneous reaction to a video. and she expressly says this was not a pplanned or premeditated attack. why was that done? i think those are important questions that need to be addressed by this committee as well because clearly this was not what happened. it was a misstatement of what occurred. we need tonderstand why that was done, and the american people deserve answers on this when you have four brave americans who were murdered by a terrorist attack. mr. mccain: i only have one additional comment, and that is i understand that the president's pressonference today, that he said not to -- quote -- pick on his ambassador to the united nations, to -- quote -- pick on him. that statement is really remarkable in that if the president thinks that we are picking on people, he rea
